חנה לוין Hanah Levine (c 1892 - 1942, השואה ha'shoah) was married to דוד בקר David Baker (c 1890 [Oshmani] - 1942, השואה ha'shoah).

דוד בקר David Baker was a very quiet man, and shy. He was a tailor but preferred alterations and repairs. חנה לוין Hanah Levine (also transliterated as Chanah) helped her husband in his work. He would travel to Oshamni sometimes for a few months at a time to work at his brother's shop, to supplement his income, and then return home to his family. The couple settled in דיבנישוק Divenishok, close to her brother Pesach who always looked after the family.

חנה Hanah and דוד David begot Rivka, Mendel, David and Chaya-Minke.

Mendel was shy and quiet like his father. After school, Mendel would help his father in the little shop. Their oldest daughter Rivka went to Oshmani to live when she was very young. David's brother raised her as his own daughter. She had a better life, a good education and became a school teacher. She often visited the family. Chaya-Minke, the younger daughter, was bright and intelligent and dreamed of education and becoming a teacher like her older sister.

The Bakers perished in the Holocaust. Their branch of the family tree didn't blossom well for them. Their blossoms didn't leave seeds to keep their names alive. But, they were and they are part of our family tree. They should be in our memories -- remembered. (FB § 10)

A mass grave without ceremony is their final resting place in Worenow, Poland.
